I was excited about this tea – lemon, mint and oolong – my three favorite things :) I find the aroma while its steeping slightly floral which is weird. Before posting my thoughts on this tea I figured I should try it a few times as I found I was not getting much mint flavor but rather just lemon and a bit of oolong. I have tried different steeping times but it does not seem to matter as the tea is pretty consistent in the lack of mint taste. So my overall thought is the tea is okay but not exactly what I was expecting and likely when my 26g bag runs out I will not re-buy.

Very tasty. Reminds me of banana bread (the kind without nuts).

I am always leary of black teas, they usually end up too bitter for me, even if I only steep them for a short period of time but not this one. It was great – very fruity, a little tart but tasty just the same.

I was intrigued by this tea as it sounded very similar to Mom’s Apple Pie (which I love), so I figured I would get a bag of this to take home. Unfortunately I think I oversteeped it as the cinnamon is overpouring everything. I am not getting the caramel apple taste that I was hoping for. I will try for a shorter steeping time and see how that goes.

Yummm! Pumpkin Chai! I forgot about you in the back of my cupboard. I only had a little bit left and was saving it and now I hear that its coming back at the end of the month – yah!! A nice blend of spice and sweetness. There is just something so comforting about pumpkin, love this tea :)

I am trying to go through the remainder of my summers teas before the fall ones come out from Davids Tea :) I had a jug of this iced yesterday and it was alright, I keep expecting it to have more of a banana taste but it is rather bland. Out of the 4 summer teas I have, this one is my least favorite.

Iced

So this tea doesn’t taste like raspberries, but the predominant tastes are the lemongrass and honeybush. Not that those tastes are a bad thing, I still enjoyed the tea, but when the name and description imply raspberries it is kind of disappointing. Maybe David’s Tea should adjust the recipe for this tea to bring out the raspberry taste more.

I just love citrusy teas (if that is a word) and this one is definitely citrusy :) I’ve had this a few times on its own and its quite tasty and I also mix it with the skinny tea to make the skinny tea more palatable.
